Talking Unidentified plants, and new planted tank setup.(pixheavy)

Hey all, I've been working on making my 38gal plant friendly. So far I've bought the Seachem's comprehensive treatment, and some Seachem's Flourish root tabs. I know I have 3 Amazon sword plants, but I've also got 3 unidentified plants, if anyone knows the names maybe you could help me out! I've built a light strip to help feed the plants an adequate amount of light (the 17w bulb wasn't cutting it). The light strip can be found here, My very own Light strip!.





Thanks

Because you can't starve us out and you can't make us run, Cause we'se them ole boys raised on shotguns.

I agree with kitten on 1 and 3. The second plant might be a crypt though not I suspect C. lingua, but I am more inclined to think it is an Anubias. B.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
